    Oscar Swag Includes $9,000 ‘Best of Las Vegas’ Trip

    By Jason Scavone

    It’s hard to feel too bad about losing the Oscar when your gift bag comes with $85,000 worth of stuff. Which is good news for anyone involved with Philomena. (Good luck, suckers!) Among the sweet, sweet, freebies to rich people who could already afford this stuff? A $9,000 “Best of Las Vegas” package.

  • An Affair to DVR

    By Una LaMarche

    Growing up, the Oscars were a major event in my house. My father, a TV and film junkie, never missed a single, glitzy broadcast. I came of pop-culture age during a four-year stretch (’90-’93) when Billy Crystal hosted four consecutive ceremonies, and you could always count on him to enter the stage in tongue-in-cheek style—on horseback, say, or dressed as Hannibal Lecter.

    Oscar Come to Vegas

    By Aleza Freeman

    In the 1970 pilot episode of The Partridge Family, the musical matriarch played by Shirley Jones shuttled her five kids to Las Vegas on a painted bus for a gig at Caesars Palace. Now, more than 40 years later, the Oscar winner will arrive at the Palms via limousine for Oscar Night Las Vegas, where she will be the guest of honor and bask in “Shirley Jones Day” (Feb. 26) as proclaimed by Mayor Carolyn Goodman.
